Violin Making and Minor Repairs



My ethos…

The violin family allows musicians to express themselves in a way that only the most talented human voice can truly exceed. In order to allow your violin to speak for you, a violin, cello or viola must be properly set up and well matched to your needs.

Many people begin on poorly made or poorly set up violins, with the belief that they or their child needn’t worry too much about the instrument they’re using as they are ‘only a beginner’. I disagree with this approach as a poorly suited instrument can detract from the player progressing and in many cases lead them to quit, believing their perceived lack of skills to be the problem, when in reality their instrument was the obstacle.

I understand that not everyone has a large budget to work with, so my passion is helping each individual find the right approach for them. Whether that’s through adjusting, restoring or repairing an existing instrument, arranging a rental or sourcing a brand new violin.

Please do get in touch with any enquiry, no matter how small you believe it to be.
